Serena Opens School in her fathers homeland, Kenya

I feel so honoured to be here," said the World Number Two and nine-time Grand Slam champion. "Thanks so much for receiving me for my first time in Kenya."

The American tennis star is on the second and final leg of an African charity mission. Initially, she was in South Africa, where she opened a new secondary school( Serena Williams Secondary Schools), that she helped build and donated computers.

Both sisters have risen to tremendous success in the tennis world. Serena, accompanied by her mother and younger sister, pledged to open more schools for poor children, saying it was the finest achievement of her life.
